    Hmm... And now it is happy again, right?

    I see that problem started with this build. And and as you see error here is different -- Validation Failed, and also appveyor does not seem to recognize (by calling GitHub API) that release with this tag continuous already exists. It tries to create new release and failed. After that (I am speculating) duplicate release created on GitHub and error sequence contains more than one matching element started to appear in the next build and few next builds.

    We probably need to contact GitHub for more information, but before that, do you remember you did something special which can be correlated to the initial error and moment problem disappeared?

    According to the docs on GitHub deployment, a description: key for release description is mandatory.

    Can you add one and let us know if this eliminates the error.
